What People Say About Dr. Teresa Griffith, MD
Reply
The Dr had not read my file and was not aware of any testing g etc.. done within the same hospital. The referral was for a specific course of treatment. This was ignored as well. I went as this was a convenient location for me. Do not waste your time if you are truly a chronic pain sufferer. No preparation will be done before hand so it will be a blank slate. Plus this doctor only works within U of M adopted practices not necessarily best pain management by most providers not associated with U of M facilities. If your referring physician or you yourself do not want to reinvent the wheel please take the time to go elsewhere. Not a bad doctor just a bad group.
